As a member of Railway Interchange, RSSI teamed up with two other associations, REMSA and RSI, to put together a bigger and better exhibition. AREMA also held its conference and seminars in conjunction with Railway Interchange. It was triple the size and triple the excitement that attracted all types of visitors from railroad, rail transit, and government. Railway Interchange is the largest combined railway exhibition and technical conference in North America with nearly 10,000 visitors from around the globe. This year the trade show was held in Indianapolis and kicked off on Sunday, September 17th.
Sinclair Technologies took part in the trade show with a wide range of railway antennas and filters on display. Sinclair’s USA sales team, Sal and Cyndi, took charge of the Sinclair booth answering lots of questions regarding industry-specific products and ways to prevent interference using RF filters. As well, Sinclair’s most well-known antenna for the rail industry, the Excaliber, have always been a popular item at this show. Over the years it has become the industry standard used by railway companies worldwide. Sinclair Technologies offers customized RF antenna and filter solutions for a multitude of rail systems.
The show was lively and grand with all major suppliers to the Rail industry present. Railway Interchange included both the signal and communication side of the Rail industry, which attracted a variety of visitors. It is a high-profile trade show for the Rail community and we were glad we could be on-board. We hope to see you again at RSSI C&S Exhibition in Omaha!
More than 1,550 freight and passenger railroaders, transit agencies and supply companies came together for the 56th annual communications and signaling exhibition and Norsat’s Sinclair Division was also in attendance.
Railway Systems Suppliers Inc. put on a two-day exhibition that featured 193 exhibitors. The event officially kicked of on June 29th with RSSI 2016 Board of Director and President Michael Choat cutting the ribbon dressed in his conductors’ hat and coat and with an emphatic ‘all aboard.’
Attendees had the opportunity to network and compare notes about future opportunities. They also heard from prominent figures in the industry including a seminar put on by the Manual for Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). Discussion was focused around how updates and revisions are selected for the MUTCD and how this might affect attendees’ businesses’.
“The RSSI Exhibition offers an opportunity for all RSSI member companies to exhibit their products and services to their rail and transit customers,” Mike Drudy, RSSI Executive Director said.
While the rail industry may seem as though it’s loosing popularity, the future was clearly on display at this exhibition. Many tech companies are diversifying and finding ways to plug into a variety of segments including communication, monitoring, detection, as well as data analysis and security. While the future is still unclear, the C&S Exhibition is a hotbed for innovation.
